Hi! My name is Marina, and it is my sketchbook. I need to improve my skills =) I promise to draw more and more ) i very like it, realy

Hey there Marina!
You've got some nice stuff , but I'd like to see alot more of it !
The room environment strikes me as specially good!
But on the photo study I'd urge you to try to focus on getting the proportions right. She seems somewhat stretched...
The only thing I could say is, on the woman sitting down, perhaps brings the darks out a bit more. For example, the area on her upper-right thigh is super dark. Maybe even black. I think bringing those values out will help make the whole thing pop.
Love the all the figure studies and everything. The bedroom looks great as well!
Basham, thanks! =)

Hey Sans! Nice work here! I don’t have much crit because I’m not very good myself.
But one advice is to take good time with the figure practicing. In the beginning time isn’t the most important.
Take your time to learn the body structure and angles. Then everything will get easier and you can speed up time during sketching.
If you haven’t tried Loomis, “Figure Drawing- for all it’s worth”, I recommend it. And there are other books that are good as well.
Here’s a video that shows how to learn the gesture drawing. It learnt some really valuable things about capturing the pose and the action in the body gesture (though I need to learn and practice much much more). I got it from someone else and now I pay it forward. I hope it will help! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmiwG...el_video_title
I like your color pallet and the 'different brush tests'!
Keep up the good work!
